New Curator!

UCFC has a found curator! Dr. Barbara Sharanowski joined the UCF Department of Biology as the curator of UCFC and associate professor in January 2016. She has set up her lab and settled in. Her research focus is the evolutionary relationships of braconid wasps. We are very excited to have a hymenopterist as our curator since the UCFC is overwhelmingly composed of Hymenoptera specimens. We look forward to Dr. Sharanowski’s input and plans for the growth of the collection. To learn more about her research focus, please visit the people page.
